Update in this ongoing saga,
First, sigh. But again, not our battle… I’ma put that aside and instead of regurgitating all the reasons why I’ma put my consulting hat on… this right here is a publicist’s nightmare. I don’t know who’s advising Kim Gardner but she needs a new strategist, publicist and attorneys. Greitens team doesn’t have to threaten to ruin her career, she’s doing that all by her lonesome.
Claims of racism and intimidation don’t make sense…. She’s the Circuit Attorney, a powerful position, powerful enough to take down a sitting governor of the opposing party. What she is alleging was said is what dueling attorneys say, watch any legal drama show.
The problem is she played dirty to get him, got caught and now is trying to hide behind charges of race and intimidation…. and is trying to get us to back this play. Yes she’s the first black Circuit Attorney, but the pushback she’s receiving isn’t from Republicans, its from citizens mad that cases are being dropped on the eve on trial and murderers are walking free…. hundreds of unsolved murders, families not getting justice… lack of witness protection… how her office is mismanaged. These critiques are based on performance, not race.
Claims of racism and intimidation may work great in the media and rally folks to her side, but is not a defense for getting caught playing dirty… or the evidence: emails, text, phone transcripts and video. At some point she’s gonna have to answer for all that. And she hasn’t, not even to supporters. Saying she’s being investigated for something someone else in her position wouldn’t because she’s black won’t work anymore than Greitens claiming he was being tried for something no one else would have been tried for. And we see how that worked out.
